Rack + Fenders for Trek Kids FX 24"

I'm heading out to buy a new Trek Kids FX for one of the boys today. After searching around for weeks it seems to be the only decent 24" bike with a rigid fork. I do wish it had a double or triple crank though.

Anyone have any suggestions for a rear rack and fenders? I have a feeling those will be difficult to find.

We put Bontrager racks on both of my kids' 24" bikes. They're not "traditional" platform racks - they're structured to hold balls/bats/etc. But they work perfectly well when used with a trunk bag. You can see one ( somewhat ) on my son's bike at: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/t...c_id=5750&v=2D
